    An open source cloud computing and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) platform for enabling private clouds. Eucalyptus takes a company s existing IT infrastructure and adds a virtualization software layer with scalable, secure Web services that work together to create elastic pools with the ability to dynamically scale depending on the company s needs.

    Eucalyptus also offers an Infrastructure-as-a-Service product in partnership with Amazon that delivers full compatibility with Amazon s Web Services APIs, enabling support for Amazon s AWS EC2, S3, EBS, AMI and IAM services. This makes it possible to efficiently extend a Eucalyptus private cloud to a hybrid cloud environment.
